    got it
    I looked over the previous posts, and from the lists, I've narrowed it down to: trays, timer, tongs, and grain focuser

    winger,

    you mentioned the multigrade filter set, and I've been looking long and hard for a set for the lpl 4550 xlg to no avail. Is cutting the Ilfords the only choice I have?

    The multigrade settings are built into the head in your enlarger if it has the VCCE head.

    Correct. VCCE stands for Variable Contrast Constant Exposure. The filter module has a switch for two filter settings (Kodak/Ilford). Then you just turn the knob on the side and the window shows you what filter number you've dialed in. Simple as that.

    Thank you again for all your help! To give you an update, I've officially emptied by wallet and I have everything minus the timer. If you want to guide me through this last one that'd be spectacular. Gralab? LPL? What works well with the 4550 xlg?

    I've used both analog and digital Gralab timers, but there are other good ones. They can be expensive so try to find a used one in good shape if you can. Any standard timer should work fine with the 4550 XLG. Nothing fancy is required.
